Resound 11, Prompt 7: Achievement Unlocked

#resound11 Prompt 07: Achievement Unlocked

What goal did you set for yourself and achieve this year? Did you achieve something you didn’t think you could? Did you win an award? Did you set a record? Did you finally get your VCR from 1985 to stop blinking 12:00? C’mon, share it! Today is your chance to brag and get a resounding round of interweb applause.

Congratulations! You did it!

How will you resound?

Hmmm… I could say it’s scoring 69 points by playing the word “sex” in Words With Friends. Or finding an awesome pair of stiletto leather booties on sale for more than 80% off. But honestly, it’s this:

25.5 hours of labor–14+ hours of it at home. Less than 30 minutes of pushing. A brief desire to marry the dude who gave me the epidural that I had previously insisted would never happen. All for 8lbs and 3 oz of a happy, healthy, much loved baby boy.
